Restore Your Tooth’s Natural Appearance With Tooth Coloured Fillings.

Regular visits to the dentist are necessary to keep our teeth and gums healthy. However, tooth decay may still occur due to the bacteria that is present in the plaque that builds up on tooth surfaces. Such tooth decay may require removal & repair with restorative materials , also known as tooth fillings.

Types Of Tooth Coloured Fillings

A tooth filling involves the process of removing decay and replacing the lost tooth structure with material to restore its integrity. Tooth fillings may also be used to treat cracked or broken teeth.

Tooth coloured fillings retain the natural appearance of your teeth and are indicated for:

1. Small to medium-sized restorations.

2. Aesthetic closure of small or moderately sized gaps between adjacent teeth.

3. Replacement of amalgam (silver) tooth fillings.

4. Veneers for discoloured teeth.

5. Exposed surfaces of tooth roots.

6. Tooth surfaces that do not bear chewing load.

7. As temporary tooth fillings for large cavities during multiple visit procedures such as root canal treatments.

If untreated, tooth decay may deepen and extend into the inner layers of the teeth, eventually reaching the dental pulp. In such instances, specialised dental treatment such as root canal treatment may be required to alleviate pain and discomfort.


Step 1: 

Your dentist will begin by assessing the extent of damage to the tooth by conducting an oral examination. 

Step 2: 

Diagnostic imaging (X-ray) will be done to determine the location and depth of decay on the tooth. 

Step 3: 

Local anaesthesia may be administered to the region to make it numb, so that the treatment can be pain-free before your dentist begins removing the decayed portion of your tooth using specialised dental instruments. 

Step 4: 

Once all the decay has been removed, the tooth cavity will be prepared and cleaned. 

Step 5: 

The cleaned cavity will then be filled with restorative material before it is cured, shaped and polished.

Step 6: 

Finally, your dentist will check your bite to ensure comfort when you chew and close your mouth.

Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ

How should I maintain my fillings long term?

Consistent good oral hygiene habits such as regular brushing and flossing are necessary to maintain your fillings in the long term. Additionally, your dentist might recommend updated diagnostic imaging (X-Ray) every two to three years to ensure recurrent decays have not developed under or around your fillings.

What do I do if my filling cracks or breaks?

Damaged tooth fillings will expose deeper layers of the tooth to bacteria decay and therefore increase the likelihood of recurrent tooth decays and pain. Therefore, it is important to inform your dentist of any damage to your tooth fillings.
